Victoria ends her trip to New York

Crown Princess Victoria is on her way back to Sweden after a four day stay in New York where she participated in the meetings around the UN General Assembly as well as engagements linked to her role as a Sustainable Development Ambassador for the organisation. There were also events linked to the Swedish economy and community in New York. Getting back to a four year old and six month old will be a rest after all that.

Victoria took part in the 71st UN General Assembly opening session which focused on sustainable development goals. That meeting on Tuesday was followed by a meeting on food and nutrition. As the mum of two young children, antibiotics and when to use them is a topic never far from debate in Victoria's life and on Wednesday she was part of a debate on how the use of this medicine can be developed in a healthy way across the world.

Victoria also held a meeting with DHO Young-Shim who is chair of the World Tourism Agencies and who is working towards the sustainable development goals so high on the Crown Princess' agenda as well.

Thursday included a meeting on gender equality and more focus on those sustainable development goals. The Crown Princess is among the most high profile of the ambassadors named by Ban Ki-Moon to work on this initiative. Victoria is heading back home where her first engagement in Sweden will be a cabinet meeting that she is attending alongside her father, King Carl XVI Gustaf, on Monday.
